Romances set in small towns have a particular charm. The characters feel like sort of like family. Too bad these locations are fictional. I want to visit them, meet the quirky residents, and maybe have a cup of coffee at the local diner. Feel free to pull up a stool at the lunch counter and join us.

The 100 thing challenge : how I got rid of almost everything, remade my life, and regained my soul by Dave Bruno — Do you ever feel like you have too much clutter in your life? Like maybe the stuff that surrounds you is threatening to take over? Dave Bruno had that feeling, and he decided to winnow his belongings down to only 100 items. This book talks about how he did it and the impact it had on his life, which was far greater than just having fewer possessions. His blog's motto is "Reduce - Refuse - Rejigger" and offers continued insights like those contained in this book.

I have the pleasure of working with a fantastic group of young adults at the Starkweather Alternative High School. The Canton Public Library in cooperation with Starkweather was awarded an ALA Great Stories Club Grant last year. The book club was such a success last year we decided to continue meeting. We are currently reading The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. We have just started, however, this is the second time reading this book for some of our members (they love it that much). This book is currently in the casting stage for a major feature film. If you haven't read it, you will probably wish you had!
